|big gear head||By '92 they had already gone to the 4 bolt backing plates on the brakes. This one is earlier than that.|

sounds good gives me some idea of what it is

|cobalt327||The code C262- if a date code like it appears to be- would be March 26 of a year ending in 2. '82, '92, etc. I don't know enough of the specifics of S-10 rearends to help more than that. Did you see big gear head's post right before yours, above?|

|rollenhard||Any idea of year?|

|big gear head||Yea, that's a S10 7.5 rear end. Those are S10 spring perches. It's an early version because it has the older type housing end with the large bolt at the top and 2 small botls at the bottom. The later S10 rear ends had the 4 bolt housing ends.|

Unless I'm mistaken it looks like the original spring perches were removed and what is on there now was welded on.
The stamped in code from the axle tube (BWH) should tell you what the ratio was originally and if it was limited slip or not- but I do not know a source for the codes for the 7.5"/7.625" diffs... so if anyone has these codes, I'd appreciate a link to them.
The easiest way to determine the ratio is going to be pulling the cover and counting teeth or look for the stamped-in numbers on the edge of the ring gear. It will look something like 10 40 (4.10:1), etc.

|rollenhard||so what your saying killerformula its a 7.5 Chevy S10?|
|11-16-2012 11:55 AM|
7.5, the 8.5 has square ears near the bottom, the 8.2 has a different cover.
